Major League Baseball All-Star voting ends on July 4th at 11:59 p.m. EST. Right now Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is making a final push to make his second straight All-Star game. The top three vote getters in the outfield will start the game. Harper is in fourth place right now, trailing third by only 15,000 votes.

Here are the official standings for NL outfielders (through July 2):

1. Carlos Beltran, Cardinals: 3,473,030
2. Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies: 2,928,606
3. Justin Upton, Braves: 2,917,659
4. Bryce Harper, Nationals: 2,902,393
5. Matt Holliday, Cardinals: 2,697,608

Harper was in second and third place for much of the season but fell to fourth after missing most of the past five weeks with a knee injury. Harper goes in to Tuesday night's game against the Brewers batting .286 with 13 home runs and 24 RBIs.
